QYAC's Cultural Heritage services team has an intimate knowledge of the environment, traditions, rituals, areas of significance and artefacts of the region and offer valuable consultation and facilitation services to ensure cultural heritage obligations are achieved.
The Quandamooka People have a strong continuous connection to the land and waters of Quandamooka Estate. We protect both the tangible and intangible aspects of our culture that have been a part of our history for thousands of years while still harnessing opportunities for growth and progress.
Our purpose is to undertake cultural heritage in accordance with the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003. We believe that this is the way to achieve the highest level of protection that can be given to our culture and heritage.
Our services include:
A two day training package which educates on the history of Minjerribah and broader Quandamooka Country. Participants also explore what Cultural Heritage is and how and why
we should protect it.
The two day itinerary balances theory content such as history and the legal framework of Native Title and Cultural Heritage with practical celebrations of culture such as:
• A Traditional Dance with the Yulli barri ba Dancers
• Meet and dine with Quandamooka Elders
• Walk the Goompi Bush Tucker Trail
• Cultural Presentation and Artefact display
• Catering by Quandamooka Chef
The Cultural Heritage Awareness Training package includes logistical planning and costs such as:
• Ferry Transfer & Island Transport
